Good news for the closed Colonial Fox Theatre

PITTSBURG, KS — The Colonial Fox Theatre is about to be placed on the Kansas Preservation Alliance’s of the ‘Most Endangered Historic Places’.

Then, the Colonial Fox Foundation found out it has been given 501©3 status, meaning it is a not-for-profit organization, which could be helpful in raising funds.

To top it all off, the 400 for 40K campaign, in which 400 people are being solicited to donate $100 each to raise a total of $40,000, is just 31 donors from its goal.

“We’re hoping by the end of the month we’ll be able to do that,” said CFF President Vonnie Corsini. “Our goal of course is to pay off the theater. Before Christmas, we’d like to have a nice ceremony and present Marsha Besse with a check to pay off the balance of the theater. Then it will belong to the citizens of SEK.”
